Alice and Oscar are mobile.

Alice started to crawl last week Smack bang on 8 months old. Oscar also started crawling yesterday at 8 months and 1 week of age. Jonathan is still trying to master the art of rolling. I am sure he will get eventually get there. We have had to move everything up out of reach. The barriers to the kitchen went up on Sunday. Alice sits and observes how we unclip the gate. She must be plotting her escape. The are all very vocal and love talking, especially when you are on the phone.

They are not all sleeping through the night however they are becoming more consistent with when they are waking up during the night. Yesterday I decided that we needed a bigger car. We really needed the extra space of a 7 seater. So I went to the local Mazda dealer as they had a promotion on the CX9.  We decided to ditch the CX7 after only 6500 km.  It was a good car but sadly it just wasn't big enough for the triple pram and the kids. The new car is the same colour as the old one, it is just much bigger.  We should have the car delivered by Friday. Ummmm, new car smell, again. We now have to work out how to get the 3 baby stickers off the back window and transfer them to the new car. I have attached a small video from last week of Alice crawling.

We have teeth.

It has been some time since our last post. Alice and Jonathan have two teeth each with Oscar bringing up the rear. They are now 7 months and 3 weeks old and the boys weigh a little over 10kg and Alice weighs about 8.75kg. The all roll and it will only be matter of days until they crawl forward rather than backwards. They stand unaided against the playpen and love getting around in their walkers. They all interact with each other are now starting to share things with each other. The three kids have beautiful yet distinct personalities. Jonathan is so beautiful and gives away smiles and kisses to all and sundry. Oscar is a little more reserved however he has the most beautiful giggle. Alice smiles most of the time and loves to be picked up. We have learnt to put the remote up or else it ends up covered in drool. Time for some photos.
